Polls: Majority in 3 key states 'embarrassed' by Trump

Voters in the three states that put President Trump in the White House- Michigan Pennsylvania and Wisconsin- view the president more unfavorably than favorably 

An NBC News/Marist poll released on Sunday showed that 36% of voters in MI approve of Trump's job performance, while 55% disapprove. Sixty-four percent in MI and Wisconsin said they were embarrassed.

According to NBC News, the polls also found Trump's job approval rating in those states to be below 40%. In Wisconsin, only 34 percent of voters approve of Trump's job performance, compared to 36 percent in MI and 35 percent in Pennsylvania.

In Michigan, Trump counts on the strong approval of 19% of voters.

On the flip side, 25 percent of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin voters said they were proud of Trump's behavior.

Asked which party they would prefer to control Congress after the midterm 2018 elections, 48 percent of voters polled in MI favored the Democrats as did 47 percent in Pennsylvania and 46 percent in Wisconsin. A majority, 56 percent, of voters disapprove of Trump's job so far. However, 55% of voters disapprove of Trump, including 40% who strongly do.

While Trump may not have the support of many voters in these states, he does earn high marks for his economic policies.

The NBC News/Marist poll also found that in all three states, voters prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress to a Republican-controlled Congress. Voters in MI prefer a Democrat-controlled Congress by a margin of 48 to 35, while voters in Wisconsin gave Democrats an 8-point advantage and Pennsylvania voters give them a 10-point advantage.

The three states in question are seen as particularly significant because they were key to Trump's victory as he became the first Republican to win all three of them since 1980s.

When it comes to worldwide issues, Trump gets bad marks, the polls found.

Collectively, 62 percent of the 1,099 respondents polled agreed the president "decisions overall have weakened the role of the United States on the world stage".

The polls also released some positive findings for the Democrats.

Perhaps even more significant is that Democrats enjoy clear advantages when voters are asked who they want to control Congress after the 2018 midterm elections.

In Pennsylvania, Democrats hold a 10-point advantage on congressional preference, 47 percent to 37 percent.
